I contemplated on swapping out these 61 humbuckers in my SG Special for a pair of Duncans. After getting acquainted with them for a while, they will stay put. The 61s are not particularly strong in the lower frequencies in this SG unlike the pair in my LP Classic. However, I managed to tweak the amp’s EQ & my Distortion pedal’s tone control (DS-1) to manifest some good midrange only angry metal guys would understand. The 61s should be your consideration if you thrive on classic / blues rock & inclining towards a crunchy setting. On that note, these will do you good if you favour ACDC more than Black Sabbath.
